       A Forward-Search P2P TE LSP Inter-Domain Path Computation
         draft-chen-pce-forward-search-p2p-path-computation-07

Abstract

   This document presents a forward search procedure for computing paths
   for Point-to-Point (P2P) Traffic Engineering (TE) Label Switched
   Paths (LSPs) crossing a number of domains using multiple Path
   Computation Elements (PCEs).  In addition, extensions to the Path
   Computation Element Communication Protocol (PCEP) for supporting the
   forward search procedure are described.
